Leucaena leucocephala - seeds

Click to see full-size image

Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowers

Wild Tamarind, Lead Tree. Arborescent deciduous small tree or shrub, flowers numerous, axillary on long stalks, white, in dense global heads 1" across. It is used as a shade plant in coffee, rubber, cacao, and cinchona plantations, for reforestation, windbreaks and firebreaks. Necklaces are made with the seeds. Leadtree is valued as an excellent protein source for cattle fodder, consumed browsed or harvested, mature or immature, green or dry. The nutritive value is equal to or superior to alfalfa. Adapts well to a wide range of tropical and subtropical environments, especially seasonally dry tropical areas. Some seedlings less than one-year old will produce viable seed. Seeds remain viable from several months to several years. The hard waxy seedcoat makes scarification necessary before planting. The easiest and most common method is to scald seed in boiling or near boiling water. Boiling water is poured directly over the seed and allowed to cool to room temperature (preferably overnight), followed by sowing. Alternatively, small numbers of seed may be scarified by nicking which involves the use of a knife or secateur to clip off a small portion of the seed coat at the end opposite the pod attachment scar (hilum).

Leucospermum glabrum - seeds

Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterUnusual colorRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

Nodding Pincushion. Leucospermum belongs to the protea family and is indigenous to South Africa. The inflorescences consist of a large number of small flowers. It is the stiff protruding styles of the flowers which are the source of the common name "pincushion" for this genus. Only a few large, hard, nut-like seeds are produced by each inflorescence. In their natural environment the seeds are collected by ants, stored in the soil, and germinate only after a fire has killed the mature plants and returned the nutrients back to the soil.
Barely cover the seeds with a mixture of coarse sand and soil mix. Keep warm and damp with bright light. Avoid high humidity. Needs fresh air circulation. Slow germinating.

Licuala peltata (elegans) var. Sumawongii - Elegant palm

Click to see full-size image

Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-like

This understory palm has very large, nearly completely circular, pleated, deep green leaves on long, dainty petioles that are so geometric in shape, they barely look real. This is the magnificent and much desired, entire-leaved variety of Licuala peltata, one of the most beautiful species. It is a moderately sized palm with usually only a short trunk, and its crown holds as many as 15 huge, flat, undivided fan leaves up to 7 ft in diameter! Native of Thailand and Malaysia, this species is much more tolerant of cool conditions than nearly any other Licuala and it will thrive in subtropical and tropical conditions and possibly even in protected spots in some frost-free, warm temperate climes, of course always out of the wind. This collectible palm is one of the most ornamental and prized.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

What is air-layered plant

Q: What is an air-layered plant?

Air-layering is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation woody ornamentals and fruit trees, when branches, while still attached to the parent plant, start producing roots where they come in contact with a rooting medium. Minimized water stress and stable nutrient levels make this method successful. Air-layering is used when grafting is not possible for a number of reasons.

Benefits of the air-layering:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a branch from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for the air-layered plant)
  • creates larger plant much faster unlike when growing from cuttings
